Mahindra Scorpio-N to get Sony music system; More features revealed in spy video

It is no surprise now that Mahindra has revealed the all-new Scorpio-N through official teaser images and videos. However, while the exterior images of the new Mahindra Scorpio-N got showcased, no official word is out about what the interior of the SUV will look like. Numerous spy pictures and videos of the interior of this new upcoming SUV are already floating on the internet. And there’s a new video, which shows some of the details of the interior from closer angles.

In the video, we can see that the new Mahindra Scorpio-N uses all-new 8-inch touchscreen infotainment, which is well-complemented with a Sony-sourced sound system. In the new teaser video, we can see that the Sony branding is visible on the dashboard-mounted speaker in the centre. Sony is already a component supplier for the 3D sound system offered in the AX7 L variants of the Mahindra XUV700. This new 8-inch touchscreen sits higher in the centre console, as compared to the lower-placed touchscreen in the current version of the Scorpio.

Apart from these new details, there are a few insights which are visible in the video and have already been confirmed in the erstwhile teaser images and videos of the Scorpio-N. The SUV has a dual-tone black and walnut brown dashboard, walnut brown leather seats, dual-zone automatic climate control, piano black finish for the centre console and a push-start stop button. It also gets a metallic finish for the vertical AC vents on either side of the touchscreen unit.

The instrument console has traditional analogue gauges for the speedometer and tachometer, with a small TFT MID in between them. While this instrument console doesn’t look as fancy as the full-TFT unit in the XUV700, it looks a whole lot better than the unit used in the current version of the Scorpio. The three-spoke, flat-bottom, leather-wrapped steering wheel is the same unit as that of the new XUV700, and also comes with buttons for voice commands and cruise control. Other features, which will be available in the range-topping versions of the Scorpio-N include a single-pane electric sunroof, roof-mounted speakers, six airbags and connected car tech.

The new Mahindra Scorpio-N will be offered with the 2.0-litre turbocharged petrol engine and 2.2-litre diesel engine from the Thar and XUV700. Both these engine options will be there in the Scorpio-N in a different state of tune – 170 PS for the petrol and 155 PS for the diesel. The new Mahindra Scorpio-N will be positioned as a more premium alternative over the current Scorpio, which will be rebranded as Scorpio Classic.
